Abstract

This project proposes a period of research in the School of Humanities at the University of Adelaide, in Australia, under the supervision of Professor Mark Harris, with the aim of deepening the analysis of the displacement and co-optation of indigenous labor between 1680 and 1720 in the Northern Captaincies. In the meantime, the hinterlands of these captaincies were marked by wars of expansion, which were not only aimed at the occupation of these spaces by the Portuguese Crown and its settlers, but also fostered movements for the forced removal of indigenous peoples, whether they were captives of war or not. To a large extent, it became clear that the aim of these displacements was not only to advance cattle ranching into the interior, but also the consequent domination and use of indigenous labor in the different captaincies of Portuguese America. The research period at the University of Adelaide will provide support for theoretical and methodological discussions on transatlantic interactions in the context of war and indigenous displacement. In this sense, the internship abroad aims to stimulate research being carried out in Brazil, corroborating reflections and hypotheses on social issues such as colonial conflicts and peacekeeping; indigenous history and culture; citizenship and migration - issues that have arisen directly or indirectly in the documents, after analyzing the sources collected in the archives in Portugal. In addition to these themes, there is a broader interest in dialoguing more directly with Ethnohistory, whose problems are strongly considered by the Adelaide History department, especially by Professor Mark Harris himself. To this end, in addition to research at the University of Adelaide library, the debates developed with Harris will be fundamental, as will participation in the "Translations, Trans/nations & Trans/locations" research group.
